2011 Gator Bowl

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs. Michigan Wolverines

This bowl game will be focused on Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez. Rodriguez is coaching to keep his job, as he has been seemingly doing since he arrived. This year he finally found the quarterback he was looking for in Denard Robinson. Robinson fits the bill of a prototypical quarterback in a Rich Rodriguez offense.

The task of stopping Robinson falls to the Bulldogs defense, a group that could be up to the task. Mississippi State can also run the ball effectively. If they get rolling, the Wolverines won’t be able to stop them. Rich Rodriguez has struggled to find a defense during his tenure at Michigan and it could be his undoing once again in the Gator Bowl.

Michigan will Win
by: Wolverine Fan

Nope, UM will win. If you look at history, Michigan has done better than any other Big Ten team in bowl games. That includes games against the SEC. There's an article on this site that confirms this -- i think.

And, Miss. State is new the bowl game thing.

Also Rich Rod will have the boys cranking. They don't want him fired.

Michigan will win. Bank on it.

Michigan Sucks

Your a moron Mississippi State will win this game by a landslide. Michigan is not even on the same level as any team from the SEC. Who cares about Michigan's past success, that gets you 0 points on the scoreboard at the start of the game. Name two quality wins that Michigan has and I will agree with you.
